UPDATED with more shut down series: Warner Bros. Television Group has become the latest TV studio to confirm that they are shutting down or postponing production on some current series and pilots. The company is not revealing titles, but I hear the list of current series whose filming has been halted include CBS’ Young Sheldon, All Rise, Bob Hearts Abishola and God Friended Me, the CW’s Supergirl and Batwoman, TNT’s Claws, OWN’s Queen Sugar, Epix’s Pennyworth and HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant, along with the already known Riverdale, The Flash and Lucifer.
On the alternative side, impacted is ABC’s The Bachelorette. Pilot-wise, Disney TV Studios earlier this morning confirmed that filming on Warner Bros. TV drama The Brides, a co-production with ABC Studios, is being postponed for at least three weeks.
